EVERYONE butting heads with Les....and his standard response to everybody who called him on something: "So, what do YOU drive? Let's see pictures." In other words, he couldn't argue back, so he'd just try to undermine their credibility. :roll: I remember him doing that to someone- Travis Rice or Brian Eyler's names come to mind, maybe...and someone else "setting him straight" & telling him perhaps he should keep his mouth shut unless he wanted to become very embarrassed. Dead silence, at least for a little while.
I remember Rob's '67 Mustang racing the airplane.
I still watch that video once in a while.
I remember when Gary Blair used to post a LOT....sometimes it was tough to understand his cryptic answers, but he ALWAYS made me think.
I remember why he stopped posting, too.
I remember searching for certain threads for 20 minutes in N54 & coming up empty...posting the Q & getting the correct link from Danny Cabral in 20 seconds. Every time. Oh wait, Danny STILL does that.... :mrgreen: Awesomely organized, or merely glued to the PC? Dunno. He does nice exhaust system work, so he must leave the computer sometimes!
I remember Randy Malik commenting on a question about the "new" Kaase SCJ heads (yeah, it's been a while)...and reading his comment, I was totally jarred...it made me realize that a basic assumption I had made about their characteristics was "wrong"...not actually wrong, but, there was an opposite way to look at their airflow capabilities and potential applications. Absolutely a beautiful moment.
I remember Terry (now 1070hp) testing the limits of a OEM Ford crank. Repeatedly. Then finding out about Van's work with the F/C...wow.
I remember some classic Jeff Hann comments that resulted in having to clean Coke spew off the keyboard. Cletus is a bit quieter nowadays...spending $20K does that to ya.
Despite the growth of the board, which was inevitable...despite the recent rash of good vendor/bad vendor posts...despite some of the O/T controversies...despite some of the closed-mindedness & lack of basic common courtesy...it's still been a great five-year ride for me. Thanks, Chilly.
